Palazzo Sasso on Italy's Amalfi Coast. The hotel, perched on a thousand-foot seaside cliff in Ravello, is often lauded as one of the world's best hotels. From the impeccable service to the absolutely-dream-like setting to the exquisite food, Palazzo offers that once-in-a-lifetime (but hope to make it twice by returning) experience so many of us seek when visiting Italy.
When I'm offering Italy travel consultations and someone proposes visiting Ravello or wants a luxury stay on the Amalfi Coast, I often say, "If you can afford it, I'd seriously consider Palazzo Sasso." This is especially true when it is a honeymoon or anniversary.
I was happy to discover Palazzo Sasso has a nice offer for the shoulder seasons in 2012 - making a stay here slightly more in reach. "Pay 3, Stay 4" gives a 4th night free to those who stay three nights between April 01, 2012 through May 14, 2012 and from October 01, 2012 through October 20, 2012, excluding Easter Week.
